The Bachelor New Zealand Returns
The Bachelor New Zealand Returns, Story’s Pie Diet a Hit & 7 Days Takes to the Road
Guaranteeing a romance-filled new year, Sunday morning saw MediaWorks announce the official casting call for bachelorettes in The Bachelor New Zealand 2017.
Ladies who are single, have a sense of adventure and are between 21 – 35 years of age have been invited to apply for New Zealand's latest season of the show.
Potential bachelorettes can head to tv3.co.nz/thebachelornz to find The Bachelor New Zealand 2017 application.
In an altogether different kind of success, Story reporter Julian Lee wrapped up his month long pie-only diet, which saw him consume a maximum of 1600 calories per day made up solely of pies (and the occasional beer).
Losing 7.6kg in four weeks, the controversial experiment saw a reduction in Julian’s weight, cholesterol and blood pressure – and proved popular with viewers, with Story outperforming its competition on Wednesday night in its target demographic of viewers aged 25-54.
The result was matched by strong performances on TV3’s Friday night comedy line-up, with both The Graham Norton Show and 7 Days winning their respective timeslots in 25-54.
7 Days’ on-going popularity with viewers will move beyond the box shortly, with only a month until the 7 Days Live Tour begins.
When the cameras and studio shut down for the year, Jeremy Corbett will be bullying the 7 Days ‘A’ team into a van to travel the length of New Zealand for ten shows, kicking off in Whanganui on November 30. More information can be found at tv3.co.nz/7days
